Sending emergency messages via satellite from iPhone 14 takes 3-5 minutes – and that’s in a big city. The Verge test results

Apple has announced that as of November 15, satellite emergency communications for iPhone 14 users will be available in the US and Canada.

The Verge editor Victoria Song put the feature to the test. Measurements were taken in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York, USA. First you need to dial 911, after which, in the absence of a cellular network, the satellite communication function is launched. Victoria Song writes that you need to wait about 30 seconds, and the SOS icon “sending emergency SMS via satellite” will appear in the lower right corner of the mobile phone screen.

After pressing the button, a simple questionnaire will appear in which you need to select the problem that you are facing (accident, lost, and so on). You also need to choose whether to notify your emergency contacts.

Victoria Song noted that she had no problems filling out the questionnaire, but if the user was injured and is in serious condition, then this step may not be so simple. After filling out the questionnaire, a satellite icon with an arrow will appear on the screen. Rotate your smartphone so that the icon turns green.

According to official information, if you are in an open area on a sunny day, then sending a message takes only 15-30 seconds. If you are surrounded by mountains or in a forest, then it will take 1 minute or even more. The Verge noted that during the experiments, sometimes messages were sent very quickly, and sometimes they had to wait quite a long time, the process took 3-5 minutes. The shorter the messages, the faster they are sent.

The disadvantage of the system is that you need to change the position of the smartphone frequently to follow the satellite signal: “If the user has a broken leg or simply cannot move, this will be problematic, and the signal may not be very good.”

She also stated that she has been testing the system in cities, so it is difficult to say how it will be used in real remote areas.

Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave “iPhone city” for $1400 and stay for even more rewards

Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave iPhone city for 1400

Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., said over the weekend that it will increase to more than $1,800 per month in December and January for permanent employees, including those who joined the company in November.

Foxconn’s generosity comes from the company’s desire to restore assembly as quickly as possible after weeks of Covid restrictions, culminating in last week’s riots. The Zhengzhou campus, which has more than 200,000 employees, assembles the vast majority of iPhone Pro models.

As we reported, the company offered each protester about $1,400 to quit and leave the plant. A Reuters source familiar with the situation confirmed that more than 20,000 workers agreed to Foxconn’s offer.

Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave

Apple said it is working closely with Foxconn to restore production to its previous pace, and both companies have expressed their commitment to keeping workers safe.

Earlier this month, analysts at Morgan Stanley slashed their estimates for the current-quarter iPhone Pro release by 6 million units. In a worst-case scenario, if extended lockdowns affect assembly in Zhengzhou, Foxconn risks losing up to 36% of iPhone revenue, or 20% of total sales for the quarter.

Previously known insider Ben Geskin posted a video showing clashes between workers and security at the Foxconn plant.

One of my friends just went to our local Apple Store and asked about orders for the iPhone 14. He was told that the supply of smartphones has completely stopped. New orders will take a very long time. The iPhone is good, but I feel most sorry for those people who are locked in the Foxconn factory.
